[IUG] terminal circ v. location circ
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
As I was doing my annual report for 2005, I realized that while we do collect a wide variety of circ stats here at GCPL, we don't seem able to collect statistics that would cross tabulate terminal circ with location code circ. We certainly can see how much items with a particular location code have been checked out, and been renewed, and of course can collect all sorts of other information about items with the data pivoting on the location code. We also can collection circ stats based on terminal location, so I do know how many checkouts and renewals we do at the desk and off of the self-check. However, while I can see that circ of that my adult music CDs (location code cacmu) increased dramatically in 2005, I can't tell how much of that circ was done across the desk here at Cedarville and how much was done at the other six branches in the system when our CDs were sent off to fill holds.
The Automation dept. here generates many daily statistical circ reports for us, is there some way to cross tab terminal and location code circ? We get along without it, but it would be useful information to have for collection development.
